The weather station showed up today around 3:00pm, which is 5 hours too late for me. Now I have to wait til WEDNESDAY before both I and the landlord can get together to properly mount this.

I will try to get it up and running tonight but posting only data from within my apartment.

It was to pretty today NOT to go outside, so I decided that on my [short] travels that I would take some pictures of some scenery around Treasure Island.

Some reason at the height of the storm my wind gauge reported a 61mph gust today 2/13/07 then an 81mph gust, then finally topped out at 100mph. Huh?
